Thanks for coming to the dance!

It was such a lovely time. Thanks to those of you who were able to make it out to school! The kids loved seeing and dancing with their teachers. For those of you who weren't able to stop by, we've got lots of really fun pictures and footage of the kids for you to see! A good time was had by all.

Tuesday Cafeteria Practice Schedule:

10:00 - 10:30: Oak

Thursday Cafeteria Schedule:

Community Gathering Practice

We are finalizing plans for community gathering practice, but our tentative time will be at 3:00 PM on Tuesday. It's not the most ideal time, but it's one of the few slots in which the gym is available. We will practice for a half hour.


Volunteer for Staff Outings Auction by March 23rd!: Message from Amanda

Hi all,

I'm writing to you regarding the Teacher Outings Fundraiser (as part of the FSC's

Spring Fling & Silent Auction Fundraiser on Saturday, May 7th at Littlefield--622 Degraw Street) If you're interested in participating in the Teacher Outing fundraiser, please complete the google form enclosed

with the details of your outing by 3/23.​

If you'd like to participate but need an idea, then e-mail me and I have​ many inexpensive ones that I​ can share with you. Ideas for outing​s​/experiences that ​I've seen at past
schools include a lesson for something you're an "expert" at (a sport, musical instrument, an art, a craft), a special lunch/dinner/ice cream outing, a visit to a local park, museum,​
or zoo, a trip to the movies---basically anything you already enjoy doing that you'd like to share with a child!

There is of course no obligation to participate, but we would love to have as many of you participate as possible. The money raised from these experiences being raffled off will contribute to the FSC fundraising priorities (this year, this primarily includes covering the costs of Mark Morris, Studio in a School, and New Victory Theatre, as well as many smaller scale initiatives in the areas of service, parent education/workshops, and after school scholarships).

You are welcome to sponsor an outing with just you, or to team up with another staff member. ​You would pay out of pocket for any expenses associated with your outing, so keep that in mind!

Thanks for considering taking part in this! Please send any questions or concerns my way.

Children and the Community Room

We've noticed an uptick of kids being sent to the community room without adult supervision. We think that because of this, our new kitchen was damaged by paint, possibly permanently. There is a large smudge of paint on the cabinet drawer, and further paint stains on the counter. Please do not send children to the community room unsupervised, especially when cleaning up from exploration/messy projects. We'd also recommend to use the slop sink in the janitor's closet for cleaning up projects that are particularly messy or involve dark paint. See Michelle, Brooke, or Todd for keys.
